The TBM is a 6.61m EPB Shield. Terratec stated the machine has been designed for the conditions of this project and incorporates features such as the VFD electric driven cutter head, a versatile design of the cutting tools that are intercheageable with 17in (432mm) roller disc cutters, the active type articulation for the shield, and the tail¹s built-in 2-Liquid backfilling system.

The JV intents to use the two TBMs for the execution of the tunnelling works between Kashmere Gate and Jama Masjid Stations, bringing the total combined distance of that each machine will bore to some 2,042m.
